​Favorite Time Of Light

This song is by Over the Rhine and appears on the Double album Meet Me At The Edge Of The World (2013).

Leave the dishes in the sink don't overthink it
Close up the brokenhearted piano
Join me on the porch if you can swing it
Let's dream an ocean in Ohio

You've been working so hard I can feel it -
The clean and honest sweat upon your skin
I wanna see the rosy light on your face
Is this evening free or did it cost us everything

It's our favorite time of light
Just before the day kisses the night
You see the redwing blackbirds fly
The sun's a big ol' lazy eye

And when the day is bending low
And rolling fields begin to glow
Feels like we traveled all this way
Just so I could hear you say
It's our favorite
Our favorite time of light

Can you still hear those children singing?
Remember Jesus Loves Me This I Know
Now there's just a lone blue heron flying
Dreaming an ocean in Ohio

It's our favorite time of light
Just before the day kisses the night
You see the redwing blackbirds fly
The sun's a big ol' lazy eye

The moon is waiting in the wings
Dreamin' up some midnight song to sing
And I know we'll be okay
Everytime I hear you say
It's our favorite
Our favorite time of light

The dreams I've dreamed I give them all to you now
I'm not really sure what shape they're in
Maybe they were all just too expensive
Maybe after dark we'll try again

So add this to your list of simple beauties
I know we're gonna miss it when we go
While barren fields undress their gentle mysteries
We dream an ocean in Ohio

It's our favorite time of light
Just before the day kisses the night
You see the redwing blackbirds fly
The sun's a big ol' lazy eye

When they lay me down at last
And this life is finally past
Just remember me this way
And don't forget to say
It's our favorite
Our favorite time of light
